La Rivetta information
Cabernet Franc comes out of a hose and platters of hearty fare are passed around at this bacaro (hole-in-the-wall bar), a favourite of salty sailors and neighbourhood eccentrics. Go for mixed plates with salami, carciofini (marinated artichokes) and porchetta (roast pork) with crusty bread. Angle for canalside spots, or get comfortable inside amid bicycle parts and pre-war English gin bottles.
